90w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has shared a video today unboxing Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Collector's Edition for the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Well, we've managed to steal, er, borrow, a production sample of the UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception Collector's Edition.
We had a little help from our friend Nolan North, otherwise known as Nathan Drake in the UNCHARTED games.
Nolan stopped by the Naughty Dog studio with our ill-gotten sample of the Collector's Edition and we couldn't resist to shoot an unboxing video to give our fans a good look at what actually comes inside the awesome looking traveling case.
We're really excited to be able to check out, in person, our first ever Collector's Edition version of a Naughty Dog developed game. Watch the video below to see Nolan give you a firsthand account.
This UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception Collector's Edition will be released in North America on November 1 for $99.99.
The entire Collector's Edition will come housed in a very cool looking reproduction of a traveling chest - it's got exclusive exterior artwork, comes with a lid that is held shut by a magnet and contains storage areas for all of the goodies that come with the Collector's...
91w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has shared a video unveil today for the airstrip sequence in Uncharted 3 on PS3 at Gamescom 2011 below.
To quote: If you were one of the hundreds of thousand of fans that tuned into our E3 2011 PlayStation press conference, you may have caught Naughty Dog's Community Strategist Arne Meyer give viewers a full demo of UNCHARTED 3's cruise ship sequence, a tense scenario that married technical prowess and high action as Drake struggled to escape the doomed vessel.
Today, Naughty Dog has returned with another epic reveal. Arne and I discuss the challenges behind keeping UNCHARTED 3 as spoiler-free as possible, and how specific sequences are deliberately designed to reveal new game mechanics, story and characters at specific milestones in the game's development process.
Watch it above, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
91w ago - Bend Studios Creative Director John Garvin has made available a video trailer today spotlighting Uncharted: Golden Abyss for PS Vita which introduces Marisa Chase.
To quote: We've just released a trailer that introduces a new and important character from our story. You met Jason Dante in our E3 demo and learned a little bit about him: that he and Drake have known each other a long time, that they each know Sully, that Drake taught Dante a lot about treasure hunting, that Dante can be a little, well, greedy.
This time we're introducing Marisa Chase. But as she tells Drake at one point, call her "Chase," only her grandfather calls her "Marisa."
I don't want to give too much away at this point, but I can say this: once again Nathan Drake finds himself on a quest to solve a historical mystery which he hopes will lead to a fantastic treasure. The trick is staying alive long enough to get there. No easy task. And when Drake gets between Dante and Chase, events quickly spiral out of control.
We were lucky to get some really great talent to play our key characters. Nolan North, of course, reprises his role of Nathan Drake. Nolan...
95w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has shared some video footage today from Comic-Con 2011 spotlighting the Uncharted 3 PS3 Interactive Entertainment Panel.
To quote: We're back from Comic-Con International 2011 and we've barely survived this year's awesome, and awesomely busy, show!
One of the our personal highlights from Comic-Con was being able to be in front of over 400 fans and talk about Uncharted 3 during our panel on Friday, July 22.
Moderated by USA Today's Mike Snider, the panel was called "Developing Interactive Entertainment: The Performance Capture Techniques of the UNCHARTED Franchise and Today's Film Industry" and it gave Amy Hennig, Taylor Kurosaki, Josh Scherr, Nolan North, Emily Rose and Richard McGonagle the perfect setting to discuss everything that goes into creating the industry-leading cinematics in the Uncharted series.
The panel also gave our fans their first look at an all-new cinematic scene, and some behind-the-scenes footage of the cast, that we prepared especially for Comic-Con.
If you weren't able to get into the room, or weren't able to attend Comic-Con this year, we've got you covered with the following highlight...
